Nautical stripes in red, white and blue for Spring/Summer are nothing new, however this season stripes have more impact. Seen on the runway at Balmain, Dries Van Noten and DKNY, stripes are now wider and come in brighter colour palettes. If a standard stripe is not your thing then look to Peter Pilotto and Preen for this seasons 'engineered stripe' which has more movement.
If wearing this look head to toe is too bold for your personal style, then why not get on board with this trend by mixing up your accessories. A striped bag or pair of shoes teamed with a block colour outfit will still have serious impact. I have selected my favourite striped garments and accessories currently available on Net-A-Porter.
